24/06/16

June 2016, Ratingen (Germany): 7layers, a Bureau Veritas Group company, has achieved its status as first, independent 3rd party test lab authorized to test and certify according to the LoRa® certification program; an important step to further strengthen its position in the IoT connectivity world.

LoRa – a LPWA - IoT technology

To turn the vision of ubiquitous connectivity – required for Internet of Things applications – into reality, innovative technologies are needed. LoRa, a Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWA) technology, is capable of complementing existing cellular network technologies and a multitude of short range technologies. LoRa features low power consumption and is cost effective at the same time. It may play an important role in the LPWA landscape which, according to a forecast from Machina Research could provide up to 3.6 bn LPWA connections in 2024. In the long run, it is feasible that LPWA technologies and the applications that come with it will exceed the number of cellular connections, thus contributing significantly to the IoT world.

The LoRa Alliance

The mission of the LoRa Alliance is to define a global standard for LPWA networks. Wireless connected devices, as well as modules, sensors, base stations, network servers as well as system integration are to be part of the LoRa eco-system. Around the world, it shall support IoT and M2M applications both for industrial and consumer purposes. Currently, over 150 companies are working on devices supporting the LoRa technology.

As a prime supporter of Smart Services and IoT application, 7layers has been engaged with LPWA technology drivers for some time.
